Suggestions on a mATX budget gaming rig please! - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Just a curious individual but why mATX for gaming? Is there really going to be a difference in performance with a mATX board?

no, the matx board is just physically smaller and therefore fits in a smaller case if your going to be going to lan parties and what not its easier.

to the OP:

9600gt will save you 40
dropping to 2gigs ram will save you probably 25
i was going to suggest the microfly but you already got it
get a e4500. its all you'll need for now that'll save you another 50
or go 2160 or 2180. the 2180 has a higher multiplier

What should I get for a CPU cooler, given the little clearance the case offers?
My CPU cooler is short but cools well (44C at full load), Thermaltake Blue Orb II.
